or retire and start allowance on social security or medicare. a lot of things that lock people in and get them to focus on government has been later in life. but i think if we did a better job of branding the things that affect us early in life and letting people know was head start important for you? government. was free lunch important to you. government. did you take the school bus to school. government. and letting people know that all of these things that we sort of think of as a part of the world with schools bus, they run. police officers are there because they are there. if we do a abort do a better job of letting them know people are making decisions to directly impact you. that's the stuff that gets them hooked on voting. not because a candidate is cool or because just because it's an election year. they stay hooked forever. >> politics are polarized. i think one the greatest things being mayor or being involved in politics it's not partisan. you know, so the great thing, obviously, you know, there's no democrat or republican way to fill a pothole on the local level we can't def
trillion or billion i forget what it is? cut to medicare which isn't true. and even if you wanted to say it was true, every republican said he's supporting also supports the exact same thing. they are accounted for in the ryan budget minus $200 million so $916 billion. these are the things i think are problematic in terms how the policy debate and i think that the super packs only make it worse. you have individuals who have personal opinions they are trying to force upon people. i think we would be better off with a -- we would be. i'm happy to be a part of super pac. i'm happy to defend barack obama he's the beefs and next president of the united states. and that's great. but do i wish this didn't have to be? yeah. i do. and i think that experiencing connecticut in public finance we have campaigns and in new york city they work fine. and voters while they may say they're not happy with taxpayer funded campaigns, you know, things have gone smoothly in a lot of the places that have public financing. i think that the rhetoric doesn't match the reality at the end of the day. we'll see wher
the obama administration slowed the growth of medicare spending by $700 billion the big attack of republicans for having done not. in the environment where you can't talk about medicare, where no one would talk about -- everyone is just talking about loophole closes, how do you get from here to there? let me ask doug first. you save the environment would be different in 2013. other than this pressure you talk about for the rating agencies, what is going to get these guys singing to my all? >> they are not going to think oh my god. this environment is the worst, but this'll be the right time to fix it. you don't have to worry about economics not happening. it can be the second word and it's very unlikely that she can't avoid getting it to next year, where i think they're going to be outside pressures. capital market, cutting rating agencies and great leadership out of the white house to get this done. and it's going to be difficult underscored to be lots of days where it's going to look like were going to make it and there's no question about that. we are never very pretty when
and the slow growth of medicare spending -- by $700 billion -- and being attacked by republicans for having done that. and the environment where you can talk about medicare, where no one will talk about this, everyone's talked about loophole closures, how do you get from here to there and let me ask does it first. he said that the environment would be different in 2013. on this pressure that he talked about, what is going to get these things in kumbaya with each other? >> they are not from the same kumbaya. i don't want to pretend that they will be. this environment is the worst. this would be the right time to fix the fiscal cliff so we don't have to worry about economics not happening. the lame-duck would be the second course, and for all the reasons i outlined, it's very unlikely that we would do anything significant. there is going to have to be great leadership at the white house to get this done. it will be hard. i'm not saying it will be easy, it's going to be difficult. there are going to be lots of days where it's going to look like were not going to make it. we are never very pret
or is a big spender. you may call me that. i also think we need to cut the increases in medicare cost, none of which would impact the benefits themselves. may say that i am in favor of cutting 716 billion, but there are ways to do that without cutting benefits. you voted for the same cuts except he wants to privatize medicare. i am seeking to go to a place called washington which is not honest but a place where everybody place the blame game which means that all of the democratic leaders think that all the problems are caused by the republicans and dollar republican leaders think of all the problems are caused by the timber crops. ladies and gentlemen, as you already know, those with and without stickers, these are among republican and democratic problems. these are american problems. the center that we address this serious fiscal and other problems that face us in this country the sooner we can get the common-sense solutions. as you already know i am not a professional politician. i take a second seat to no one in my devotion to this country and my commitment to do the right thing i served
65. president obama's affordable care act doesn't offer a truly long-term fix to medicare. so what is your plan to keep medicare solid while not forcing seniors to fend for themselves? menendez: from the medicare is not an esoteric debate. my mom who worked in the factories of new jersey, worked really hard to get us into the middle-class in the triad of her life she was fighting alzheimer's. medicare was her health care security. it made a difference with her to live in the dignity she deserved. that's why under the affordable care act extended the life of medicare until 2024. and that is why we will continue to work to look at various proposals that will continue to extend the life of medicare. some of what we did is beginning to eliminate the waste, fraud and abuse. but as part of what extent of the life of medicare, by stopping over payments to insurance companies prospectively and also may be -- i don't know that warren buffett and bill gates made medicare. so maybe we have to look at what type of means testing should be considered to ensure that the life of the program contin
their tax subsidies, he voted twice -- not once, but twice to end medicare by turning it over to private insurance companies. that's not providing a safety net. that is creating a promise for the people of the state of nevada. they node to know who's fighting for him and who's fighting for the big guys. time and again whatever my opponent says -- and he talks a good game. rather than standing with middle income nevada cans who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own, my opponent has been voting with wall street, voting with corporations that ship our jobs overseas, voting with big oil instead of taking care of business at home. you want to create jobs? don't give tax subsidies to big oil. invest in nevada's renewable energy companies. he voted against investing, investing in nevada's companies that are going to create good-paying jobs right here in the state of nevada. that's what nevada's senator has to do. >> moderator: thank you. senator heller, you have a minute to rebut. [laughter] heller: she has so many talking points, one by one we can rebut everything. >> she has said
this in the predicament that we have are the entitlements, medicaid, medicare, social security to a lesser degree, but we have to address the entitlements. >> in what is the libertarian position on not? >> well, and promising to submit a balanced budget to congress in the year 2013. that is not promising a balanced budget. that's to submit a balanced budget to congress in the year 2013, believing that if we don't reduce government expenditures by $1.4 trillion, that we'll find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse in a monetary collapse very simply is when the dollars we have aren't worth anything. and that's going to be the consequence of us continuing to borrow and print money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar. >> governor gary johnson is the author of this book, "seven principles of good government: liberty, people and politics." he's also the libertarian candidate for president. what other issues you write about in this? >> well, this being kind of a background on my history. i've been a much greater were my entire life. i started a one-man handyman business in albuquerque in 1874 a
are talking about ends and means. the ends is noble. medicare, lyndon johnson said it's the job of government to take care of the bent and the ill. the bent means the old, the aged. his methods are route -- ruth ruthless, cruel, and sometimes hard to write about. the life of johnson, the means he used to accomplish them are really an examination of the relationship between ends and means. it's not a simple answer to it. >> host: and we are talking here with robert caro at the national book festival. in april, the years of lyndon johnson, passage of power came out, the fourth in the series on lbj, and the next call for him comes from don in new haven, connecticut. don, you're on booktv. >> caller: thanks. hi, mr. chairman caro. it's a pleasure to talk to you. >> guest: hello. >> caller: quick question. would we have medicare and medicaid today if not for johnson? >> guest: i'll say ton that particular -- i'll say on that particular question, that's really a major thing i examined in the book i'm writing now, and i have not done -- i have not finished it. i have not even finished the think com
. are you retired server line of social security or medicare. a lot of the things they really thought bother people and get them to focus on government happening later in life. but i think we did a better job of branding. or indian or the things that affect us early in life and let us know, was headstart important for you? government. this free lunch important to you? government. did you take the school bus? government. letting people know that all of these things that we sort of think of as a part of the world, police officers, if we do a better job, people making decisions, people who make decisions that directly impact you, that's the stuff you get hooked on voting, not because the candidate is cool or because -- just because it's an election year. they stay hooked forever. >> politics are polarized. the greatest thing about being mayor is often times it's not partisan. so the great thing obviously is there's no democrat or republican way to fill a pothole. on a local level, we cannot touch this then. we had to balance the budget. there's things we have to do is mayor to solve problems. w
call me that. i also think that we need to cut the increases in medicare costs. none of which would impact the benefits themselves, so he may say that i am in favor of cutting that money, but by the way, he voted for the same cut, except he wants to privatize medicare. i am seeking to go to a place in washington, where everyone plays the blame game -- where everyone thinks that the problems are caused by the democrats and republicans. as you already know. the sooner that we address this, this serious physical problem in this country, the sooner we can get the solutions and not the gobbledygook. as you already know, i am not a professional politician. you can tell by my haircut. however, i take a second seat to no one in my commitment to the right things for this country. i served 30 years in the united states army on active duty and as an active reservist. and i did it because it was the right thing, but i also think that was the right experience. as you may or may not know, 80% never served in the military. those people who never served don't know what it's like to send sons and da
and to the extent that this election of paul ryan and his liabilities on medicare is becoming a problem for the romney campaign and perhaps even in some of the senate raises? >> who would like to go first? >> well, in 2008, if we just look at the seniors and the exit polls president obama lost seniors by eight points and then in 2010 midterm elections, with the exit polls aggregated the exit polls for the senate raises democrats lost by 20 which was one reason why -- and then looking to our nbc "wall street journal" poll the president was trailing seniors by close to the 2008 margin, nine points and look, i think that you know, i think paul ryan is a very smart person. i think clearly the romney team must feel he is a qualified to be president president of the united states. is a democratic analyst, to us it just sort of reignited the whole medicare issue because you know we have spent a lot of time and glen and i do senate and house campaigns, talking about the ryan plan. and you know, sometimes we talk about the ryan plan without saying the ryan plan because people didn't know who pau
and romney are arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we don't, um, i believe that we're going to find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar that we spend. >> host: so what are you seeing out there on that particular issue? what's your prescription, pardon the expression. >> guest: well, i oversaw the reform of medicaid in new mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we took it from a fee-for-service model to a managed care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, we set up better health care networks for the poor in new mexico. i believe if the federal government would have block granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, done away with all the strings and the mandates that i could have effectively overseen the delivery of health care to the poor. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal gov
interested in what is happening in the medical section as far as medicare. i recently fell into the doughnut hole, so why you understand what that means. since now that i am retired ibm on a fixed budget. that's my first priority. but i will be listening tomorrow, wednesday night, and i have been listening at the republican convention and in very interested in what is going on. >> host: y watch, cynthia? what do you hope to gain from watching? >> caller: i have some idea i think my president has grown in a lot of the areas as far as foreign affairs, which i don't know anything much about. but i think mr. romney has the ability of leading a company, you know. there is a difference in a manager and staff for so therefore he has the ability to lead companies but i think it takes a special person to lead the country, and i want to hear how he plans to do that, and i do want both candidates to be specific. i like to have things spelled out for me. >> host: we have a poll the facebook page asking whether you plan to watch the presidential debate tomorrow night. so far the yes's are a strong majori

to admitting he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program. i thought the president pushed back on that very effectively, when he said, hey, if you're 55 you might want to listen to this. i'm still not sure exactly what governor romney was saying about his promise of $5 trillion in tax cuts. i mean i heard the platitudes but i didn't hear any specifics. and, i thought he was doing a lot of shape shifting on that one. >> governor, good evening. this is rachel. we've been talking on set here about our surprise we didn't hear more from the president on his standard attack line. we thought we would heard more on the 47%. more attacks on bain. why do you think those were absent from this debate? >> because i think that this debate needed to get to the, you know, the two contrasting plans that these two mortal individuals are bringing to the american people. look, we can choose greater tax cuts for, for the wealthy and see if that works better for us this time. or, we can, we can get back to the more balanced approach that president clinton used to retire deficits and our parents and
and shoot grandma says she can't take any more medicare and roth a cliff or something like that. they're very positive reforms. i mention cell phone. why can we get back the same creativity in health care to create more health care. they get the agriculture, but then we have no more obesity. they'll be serving. in terms of food, without agriculture produce the food, companies process the food, deliver the food. casinos and restaurants and supermarkets and grocery stores sell the food to everything from food banks to food stamps to do with it. why can we do this thing and health care so people get the basics and get real free markets? i live in new jersey. you got me going on this. this is immoral. i can buy a perfectly good health insurance policy, even less than wisconsin. i can buy a car, but not the insurance. want to open up nationwide shopping and get hundreds of companies competing. alastair to change a health care is delivered, but the patient in charge comes up with ways of getting more availability and health insurance. there's exciting ways to do for people with chronic cond
for unfunded war, voting for unfunded medicare part d because that's much too painful. the people he talks about that are struggling to get their jobs, the people i've talked about, talked to in the last year and a half plus, the people that are struggling to make it are the people who lost their jobs because of the wild speculation wch your deregulation that you supported caused. and the people swimming in their mortgages, all those things, all the things that people have suffered for after glass-steagall was rescinded in 1999, and the eight million jobs that were lost. these are all things we haven't mentioned tonight, but these are the things that our country now suffers from. you hear lower taxes. we're in a war right now, people. and i think everybody here knows that. how irresponsible is it to say lower regulation, lower taxes, we'll get more jobs, oh, and we have those people over in afghanistan. so i think if you can overcome the washington speak and find that my comments and my righteous indignation is worthy of your vote, then i want your support because 12 years is long enough.
to save and strengthen medicare and social security, and we're putting the ideas on the table on how to do that. we're not going the try and scare seniors, we're going to save these benefits for seniors and for my generation so that these promises are kept. >> they have laid out clearly, they say, that what barack obama and joe biden did is they've endangered medicare, they've stole money from medicare, and they've done it to get obamacare and all this, and you see in the ads, and you hear it in everything they say. nothing could be further from the truth. >> next thursday night, october 11th, congressman paul ryan and vice president joe biden will face off in their only debate. abc news' martha rad dismoderates from center college in danville, kentucky, and you can watch and engage with c-span with our live debate preview at 7 p.m. eastern followed by the debate at 9. and your reaction, calls, e-mails and tweets at 10:30. follow live coverage on c-span, c-span radio and online at c-span.org. >>> this month as the presidential candidates meet for debate, we're asking middle and high school
that they have 100 days to reform medicare, reform social security, got to get spending under control, and it can't be like business as usual. they will be tempted to do that. republicans hold meetings and think about it a long time. they can't do that. they absolutely have to come out of the gate, blasting for reform, they have to rebuild the military, get the 313 chips, restore the terrible cuts the put in place. if they do it, democrats screams, the media screams, but the american people applaud and will be rewarded with a long period of time in time and power. if not, we'll go home. mitt romney will have the same problem obama had. he made the same promises. he's got to live up to them, a reform that obama made. i'm hoping that when we gather hen a year from now, that we'll have a set of prompts delivered upon, and maybe a new book. now, one last thing -- [laughter] i said they'd spend $2 billion in search of a million votes. i think the obvious thing is to buy a million copies of "the brief against obama" and leave them around the state; right? giving that i don't think the romney campaign d
indexed social security, having enacted supplemental social security, ssi, medicaid and medicare, the elderly the are least poor in the country, and the group, i'm not surprising you, that is the poorest are children. why? because children have parents, and this is largely a story about women. women and children. they are the poorest group. now, that job, that $34,000 job pays almost the same amount that it did in 1973 #. it's only gone up. if you take inflation intoing the. it's just gone up by 7% in the 8 years last year for which i've got numbers is 2011, only gone up 7% less than a fifth of 1% per year. it's really astonishing. did the country not -- did the economy not grow? well, of course it grew. all of that growth has stuck at the very top. 1%, 99%, absolutely. that's -- that is story number one that we need to have in mind in understanding why we're stuck, why there's so many people who are having such a tough time, and it goes all the way down into people who are working hard and can't even get out of poverty. second point in the terms of the story of the situation tha
government for social security and medicare. one trend is that the unions are turning from organizations that represent their members and contracting company gushy shins and to and grievances into lobbying organizations. and as our nanny state which heritage helps fight against so well becomes more commonplace, it will be easier for government to force groups of americans to accept for slobbing on their behalf, just like a force american workers to accept forest representation now. think about it my friends. the 20.5 billion government employees, these unions are already representing 41% but there are tens of millions of americans who receive some form of benefit or entitlement from government who can also be unionized with the few tweets of the law. imagine how much more income could be generated by representing them. i don't know if you all realize this but for every million worker there is about it really in dollars for shadowbosses. every million worker, there is a billion-dollar in dues to support political activities and help leftist organizations. for the past half-century, govern
by supporting a middle-class, preserving and strength and in social security, strengthening medicare? or will that just simply marginalizes further? >> it would be nice to have a real contrast between the parties. however, i think there are anti-seaton problems such as the avalanche of money in politics, which impels those parties to be money grabbers, to spend coming in now, anywhere from 40% of their time in congress to dialing for dollars and going to fundraisers. and every time a politician is either be elected or retires, he says, i hate the money chase. they all hate it, that they are trapped in the system. >> so what should we do? >> get the money out of politics. and it would also help if we had something other than this crazy system we have in this country, unlike most modern democracies, where you get state legislatures drawing the district lines in congress. all it does is create safe democrat and safe republican districts. it furthers the polarization of the country. >> so the next question. i would like to know where fna plays in the pantheon of republican transactions c
for medicaid, which is medicare -- are people, medicaid is for people, and they said that the cure was to corser. they said that states were turning it down and it was too great and that was a violation of states rights. you know, medicaid -- not every state adopted medicaid right away. arizona was the last state to adopt medicaid in 1982. there was no medicaid in arizona until 1982. the people i know who know this issue best suited in all these governors, they are talking big now. we are going to turn us on turning down this morning. and they have hospitals and doctors coming to them saying, are you insane leaving all of these billions of dollars on the table? it will start to be people in states that come around. particularly, after 2010, all of these states including this one, it may be a somewhat slow process. >> i thought i would test your predictive powers in wartime. a blog in the new yorker about the defense of marriage act in the way it would be viewed. i thought that would be an interesting thing to bring up the math well, it is really a fascinating moment. because there
for medicaid, which is medicare is older people, medicaid is poor people. and they said they cared was too coercive. they said the stakes were -- returning it and was too great so that was a violation of states right. you know, medicaid was, not every state adopted medicaid right away. arizona was the last state to adopt medicaid in 1982. medicaid passed in the 1960s and there is no medicaid 19 -- in arizona until nine team 82. all these governors are talking big now, we are going turn down this money. we don't want the strings attached. but when they want to start balancing their budgets and when they have hospitals and doctors come to them sing, are you insane living all these billions of dollars on the table? there will start to be people, people, the states will come around but they may not all come around at first. and particularly after 2010 we're all these states including this one included republicans, it may be a somewhat slow process. >> i thought i would test your particular powers one more time. you have a blog, i think was a blog entry in "the new yorker" about the defense of
the growth of medicare spending by $700 billion, and they're being attacked by republicans for having done that. so, in an environment where you can't talk about medicare, in an environment where no one will talk about base broadeners, everyone talks about loophole closers, how do you, how do you get from here to there? and let me ask doug, first, you said that the environment will be different in 2013. other than this pressure you talked about pro the rating agencies what will get these guys singing kumbayah with each other? >> they're not going to sing kumbayah. i don't want to pretend that they will. this environment is the worst but this would be the right time to fix the fiscal cliff so we don't have to worry about the economics. not happening. lame duck would be the second worst. and for all the reasons i outlined i think it is very unlikely we'll do anything real significant. do the little bit you can to avoid damage and get to next year where, i think they're going to be outside pressures from capital markets and rating agencies and there's going to have to be great leadership out
obama and joe biden they have in the injured medicare. they stole money from medicare and they have done to get obamacare and you see in the ads and you hear in everything they say nothing can be further from the truth. >> this gives us a great insight look into what is happening in washington so whenever that happens it will come back to you and change the view so it's different in regular media because it's very objective and it shows a lot of what is real and what is going on. >> i watched the hearings on c-span and when the senate and house votes on the bills we watch in the office and when the supreme court has hearings we watch different decisions and opinions on c-span. >>> a discussion now with the mayors of massachusetts and ithaca new york. they spoke yesterday on the future of american democracy at georgetown university berkeley center for religion, peace and world affairs. this is part of the millennium value symposium, which consists of a series of panels focusing on democracy in the u.s.. this is about one hour and ten minutes. >> i would like to hear from all of you and, y
